Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

To use Smart Update Manager from the Service Pack for ProLiant:
Offline:

  • Service Pack ProLiant Offline mode boots a special Linux OS environment, thus the Linux Smart Component are used, not the VMware Smart Components

Remote Online, if the component is supported by SUM but is not yet part of an SPP:

  • Download the appropriate Service Pack for ProLiant
  • Add the component to the Service Pack for ProLiant
  • Mount the Service Pack for ProLiant on a remote server running Windows or Linux that has a network connection to the ESXi host to be updated
  • Run Smart Update Manager via launch_sum.bat for Windows or launch_sum.sh for Linux
  • Add the ESXi host to be updated as a remote target/node
  • Enter the IP or DNS address of the ESXi host to be updated if the ESXi host is Gen9 Server or Enter the IP or DNS address of the iLO of the ESXi host if the Sever is Gen10 and above
  • Enter the ESXi host/iLO credentials (root or administrator username and password) based on Gen9/Gen10 and above
  • For Smart Update Manager 6.0 and newer, select both the Additional Package with the added component and the Service Pack for ProLiant Baseline on the node Inventory page.
  • Follow Smart Update Manager Steps and complete the firmware update.
  • Refer to the Service Pack for ProLiant Documentation for detailed instructions at: www.hpe.com/servers/spp/download

 

To use HPE Insight Control for vCenter :

  • Log in to the vSphere Client.
  • Select a server or cluster in the inventory tree.
  • Click the HPE Insight Management tab.
  • Follow Insight Control for vCenter steps to update firmware using a Smart Component

 

To update firmware from VMware ESXi operating system on target server:

  • Enable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host.
  • Login as root. (You must be root in order to apply the ROM update.)
  • Place the Smart Component (CPxxxxxx.zip) in a temporary directory.
  • From the same directory, unzip the Smart Component.
    • unzip CPxxxxxx.zip
  • The smart component includes CPxxxxx_VMw.zip which consists of VIB which needs to be installed to perform firmware installation
  • Ensure that the file CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip is executable. Execute the command:
    • chmod +x CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip
  • To perform the standalone installation, execute the command:
  • esxcli software vib install -d /<path_of_CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip>/CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip
  • Once the installation completes, change directory to /opt/Smart_Component/<CPxxxxxx>. Execute the comand:
    • cd /opt/Smart_Component/<CPxxxxxx>
  • To perform standalone installation of the firmware,Execute the command:
    • ./ Execute_Component
  • Follow the directions given by the Smart Component
  • Logout
  • Disable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host
  • Reboot your system, if required, for the firmware update to take effect

Installation Instructions

Prerequisites:

Please consult SPOCK for a list of supported configurations available at the following link:

http://www.hpe.com/storage/spock/


To ensure the integrity of your download, HPE recommends verifying your results with the following SHA-256 Checksum values:

Reboot Requirement:
Reboot is required after installation for updates to take effect and hardware stability to be maintained.


Installation:

To use Smart Update Manager from the Service Pack for ProLiant:
Offline:

  • Service Pack ProLiant Offline mode boots a special Linux OS environment, thus the Linux Smart Component are used, not the VMware Smart Components

Remote Online, if the component is supported by SUM but is not yet part of an SPP:

  • Download the appropriate Service Pack for ProLiant
  • Add the component to the Service Pack for ProLiant
  • Mount the Service Pack for ProLiant on a remote server running Windows or Linux that has a network connection to the ESXi host to be updated
  • Run Smart Update Manager via launch_sum.bat for Windows or launch_sum.sh for Linux
  • Add the ESXi host to be updated as a remote target/node
  • Enter the IP or DNS address of the ESXi host to be updated if the ESXi host is Gen9 Server or Enter the IP or DNS address of the iLO of the ESXi host if the Sever is Gen10 and above
  • Enter the ESXi host/iLO credentials (root or administrator username and password) based on Gen9/Gen10 and above
  • For Smart Update Manager 6.0 and newer, select both the Additional Package with the added component and the Service Pack for ProLiant Baseline on the node Inventory page.
  • Follow Smart Update Manager Steps and complete the firmware update.
  • Refer to the Service Pack for ProLiant Documentation for detailed instructions at: www.hpe.com/servers/spp/download

 

To use HPE Insight Control for vCenter :

  • Log in to the vSphere Client.
  • Select a server or cluster in the inventory tree.
  • Click the HPE Insight Management tab.
  • Follow Insight Control for vCenter steps to update firmware using a Smart Component

 

To update firmware from VMware ESXi operating system on target server:

  • Enable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host.
  • Login as root. (You must be root in order to apply the ROM update.)
  • Place the Smart Component (CPxxxxxx.zip) in a temporary directory.
  • From the same directory, unzip the Smart Component.
    • unzip CPxxxxxx.zip
  • The smart component includes CPxxxxx_VMw.zip which consists of VIB which needs to be installed to perform firmware installation
  • Ensure that the file CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip is executable. Execute the command:
    • chmod +x CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip
  • To perform the standalone installation, execute the command:
  • esxcli software vib install -d /<path_of_CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip>/CPxxxxxx_VMw.zip
  • Once the installation completes, change directory to /opt/Smart_Component/<CPxxxxxx>. Execute the comand:
    • cd /opt/Smart_Component/<CPxxxxxx>
  • To perform standalone installation of the firmware,Execute the command:
    • ./ Execute_Component
  • Follow the directions given by the Smart Component
  • Logout
  • Disable Tech Support Mode on the ESXi host
  • Reboot your system, if required, for the firmware update to take effect
